The treatment of pain in the patient with cancer
Journal/Book: CA Cancer J Clin. 1986; 36: 194-215.
Abstract: Pain is one of the most feared consequences of cancer. Control of pain from cancer should be possible with the approaches discussed above. Changing attitudes toward the effective use of narcotic analgesics, the development of novel routes and methods of administration, and a clinical approach based on scientific principles and humane care offer the promise of improved management of pain in patients with cancer.
